Looking In On The
Brighter Side Of
The Great Floods
While the flood in Eastern Amer
ica was doing a billion dollars worth
of damage, there were also some in
teresting bits of humor that went
along with the tragedy of it all.
ORANGE, Mass. A, woman - resi
dent of Erving remembered her pen
nies at the height of the Connecticut
valley flood. She asked telephone
headquarters here to disconnect her
telephone, saying she did not be
live she would need it any more.
"You'd better hurry," she told the
operator, "the house has started down

reported, the house was far down

from the flood.
Moses is the son of Mr, and Mrs.
Emilien Racine, born prematurely
yesterday, Dr. Maurice Dionne said, in
a house surrounded by raging flood
waters of the Androscoggin river.
ChHd and mother were taken from the
house by boat and moved in an am
bulance to safety.
CALLIOPE IS USED
HOL YOKE, Mass; When the pow,
waters of the Androscoggin river,
er plant of the American Tissue mills
wa, short circuited by the flood, the
company pressed into service a calli

purposes, to operate lights and tele
phones. -,''' .
The calliope was equipped with a
gasoline driven electrical generator.
JUMPS THROUGH BOAT
PITTSBURGH. Two nolicemen
laboriously rowed their boat along
side a house partly covered by the
floods to rescue a man hanging from
a second floor widow.
They cautioned him not to be ner
vous and he replied:
Don't worry." :
Then he leaped and went through
the bottom of the boat, carrying the
officers with him.
The police worked lone hours durine
the flood with little time out for food.
One was found, in full ukform, 'lean
ing against the city-canty building
in the rain.
He was sound asleep.

Question: How can I make a profit
from my hens when egg prices are
Answer: l'eak production usually
means low prices on eggs and this
condition is natural at this time of
the year. The logical method of cor
recting this trouble is to cull the
flock' and remove all low producers.
This will materially cut the feed bill
and .brink, up the average production
per bird. Another way is lay down a
supply of eggs in water glass. Direc
tions for this work may be secured
by writing the Poultry Department
at State College.
